The kids were off from school Friday so we took a drive down to Madison, GA to the Madison Morgan Cultural Center to see the Andy Warhol exhibit.
Ever since reading this article in Southern Living I've wanted to take the kids.
The exhibit is in a fantastic old building that was the first graded schoolhouse in Georgia.
Warhol's soup cans greeted us right inside the door!
We watched a film about Warhol (that was a little above the kids' heads) and then visited the two galleries. One contained mostly pieces from his "Myths" collection.
(I didn't mention the name of this collection because Santa's picture was included!)
The other gallery included works from his "Cowboys and Indians" collection as well as a few other pieces.
On the way out, the docent asked if we would like to ring the school bell.
So of course we did!
After the museum we stopped at one of the most fabulous indy bookstores I have ever set foot in! I am already thinking of another visit to Madison just to go back to Dog Ear Books!
We finished our day with lunch at Madison Drug's Old Fashion Soda Fountain.
This exhibit was definitely worth the drive! It's only there until April 2nd, so if you are going, you'd better hurry!
